“Tearmoon Empire”: A Lazy Heroine Set to Fix Things
Tearmoon Empire’s story is described as follows:
“Surrounded by the hate-fulled gazes of her people, the selfish princess of the fallen Tearmoon Empire, Mia, takes one last look at the bleeding sun before the guillotine blade falls… Only to wake back up as a twelve-year-old! With time rewound and a second chance at life dropped in her lap, she sets out to right the countless wrongs that plague the ailing Empire. Corrupt governance? Check. Border troubles? Check. Natural calamities and economic strife? Check. My, seems like a lot of work. Hard work and Mia don’t mix, so she seeks out the aid of others, starting with her loyal maid, Anne, and the brilliant minister, Ludwig. And why did the selfish princess have a change of heart, you ask? Simple- she didn’t. She’s just terrified of the guillotine. They hurt like hell, and Mia hates pain more than work.”
